Better—deeper, richer, more rewarding, more surprising, and more beautiful—than the first one. Tears of Frost is what a sequel should be.

****4.25 Which side am I on? Stars****

I am confused on how I feel about this part of the series....I am not a big fan of jumping around relationships, so I think it took away from the story for me.

Don't get me wrong, I want to continue to read to see what happens to Mia and Pil and Quin but I hope the next one stays on the correct relationship path!

This is such a magnificent story that hits on so many of the things that I love best in a book. It is utterly unique and heartbreaking and fresh. The story pulls you in and mesmerizes you.

I think that what I love most about this book is all the unspoken and underlying parallels to women's empowerment that are present in the story. The delicate issues t

Spoiler-free Review:
You ever finish a book and just know that that is a book that is going to stick with you? That was me all while reading this book. It was poignant, funny, heartbreaking and necessary in all the best ways. Bree absolutely knocked it out of the park with this one. It is the Empire Strikes Back of a magnificent trilogy. It is what I want all sequels to beloved books to be like. She took the characters and world i already adored and just deepened everything. Bonds were test

“We women need each other now more than ever. We’re fighting for the same side.”

Decisamente migliore del primo, intrigante, femminista, affascinante.
Non vedo l’ora di continuare!

(Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)

If I thought I loved the sister relationships in Heart of Thorns, Tears of Frost blows it out of the water. Not only does Tears of Frost begin with a letter from the author about the content of sexual assault and depression, but the story is rich and introspective. A society in which women's bodies and potential for magic are shunned and punished, seeing the characters experience

I gave this book five stars, but I'm honestly so conflicted about so many things. So I'm going to split this into things I liked and things I didn't like. Here we go.

Things I ADORED.
- The FEMINISM. Like, if the first book was a feminist masterpiece, this one takes it one step further and guts you and gives you female empowerment and sisterhood and all the things you need. It is grand. Mia and Pilar are going to run the world.
- Pilar's backstory (tw: rape). This was really

I loved the first book and so had to read the 2nd in the series. I would recommend reading the authors letter to make sure you want to read the book (rape mentioned) before you read it.

The author's letter at rhe beginning was a bit of a surprise and moving at the same time. Then the story started..... At first I was a bit confused as it started different to how the last one ended. Then slowly the characters were reintroduced and you start to follow it alot easier. It just felt like a

Bree Barton has a way of writing characters and situations that speak to the inner dark depths of your soul. They make you question everything about your world and how you can be better or at least make the world a little bit better.

Tears of Frost starts up a few months after Heart of Thorns ends. And it starts off with a banger. Like legit. Heads bang together. Not in the way y’all think. It’s much cooler than that.
Victoria Moschou

More whimsical and sensuous and far more vulnerable, but at the same time honest, than Heart of Thorns.

Tears of Frost is a journey of self-knowledge and inner strength everyone should experience. It teaches us that we can’t change our history, our past, but we can always learn from it and become far better people than the ones we were yesterday.

With friends from the past, new characters to absolutely love and hate, and with characters
